About Me


Who am I?

I am Jen, a girl passionate about Jesus and helping people to know how to walk intimately with Him.  I have been married for 12 years to my husband, Craig, and we have two daughters, ages 8 and 6.

Why do I blog?
Most days it is so easy for me to get bogged down in my reality, the tangible, day-to-day happenings that make up my life. Oh, but so much more is waiting for me if I would come and sit awhile with Him. No matter what situations seem to define my life, there is a piece of Heaven waiting for me - a place of peace, restoration, and comfort. Being in this world is hard. Daily struggles, tribulations, and people pulling us in all different directions can take a toll on our lives. Somehow, though, finding a piece of Heaven can give us a new outlook, a new purpose, and direction we may have never considered. Finding God in those quiet moments brings refreshment to our malnourished souls. I am not great at keeping a personal journal, but thought that I might be more willing to write down my revelations if someone else might respond. That's a good reason to blog, right?
When I first thought about blogging and was racking my brain for a title, I was longing for a little slice of heaven in my life.  The intent of the blog, and still is for the  most part, is to put words to the experiences of my walk with God -- in the mundane details and the big milestones.

And then, my grandmother became deathly ill.  And then, she died.

The blog then became my outlet for my grief, a grief I had never experienced before in my life.  And I was literally trying to find Heaven so that I could figure out how to still keep my sweet Grannie in my life.

Through this whole process, I have fallen in love with writing.  I have fallen in love with the people I have meet in this blogosphere.  And I have fallen even more deeply in love with my Savior, who makes all of this possible.

  1. Hi Jen

    I 'met' you over at Tami's blog where she commented on her memory stone. I was moved by your comment and wanted to introduce myself. I HAVE also been down the road you've travelled.. as you may have seen by my comment.. you are definitely NOT ALONE. I haven't gone public with my story.. yet.. I'm waiting for God to show me the right timing. Let's just say that my road was a little bumpier than yours. I dont mind sharing my story with others if it would help them. Its nice to know that other people have recovered and are rebuilding and that we are not alone. ;)

    God bless!

  2. I just found you through Lynn M. blog and so glad I did. And I can't believe who your commenter above is. She has turned out to become such a good friend to me in the blogging world! And what little I have read here, I feel like we could also be sisters. We really are sisters in the Lord :)
    So glad I came by. I just became your next follower.
    So nice to "meet" you

  3. Hi... My first time visit and I enjoyed it. I was drawn to your blog name in someone's blogroll. Because my own blog is about 'catching glimpses of heaven in unexpected places'.

    My heart's longing is to let His kingdom come... on earth as it is in heaven... through every part of my life, every day. Big things, little things, everything.

    So it was fun to browse through some of your postings and get to know you a little.

    Here's wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places...........

  4. Hi Jen! Nice to meet you! I love what you wrote:"Oh, but so much more is waiting for me if I would come and sit awhile with Him. No matter what situations seem to define my life, there is a piece of Heaven waiting for me - a place of peace, restoration, and comfort." It is so true and that is something that I am finding lately in my life!
    I'd love for you to check out my blog too! http://livelaughlove-brandi.blogspot.com/
    Have a blessed day!
    In Christ,
    Brandi

    1. Hi Jen!

      I deleted my previous comment because the information was no longer accurate. I have joined your Soli Deo Gloria link-up and I hope I'm doing it right :) Also, I deleted my previous blog because it was what God put on my heart to do. I have since started another one (also because it was what He told me to do) and you can find that at http://heretofindhim.blogspot.com Thank you so much for stopping by and welcoming me to SDG!

      Blessings to you!

  7. Found you through The Scenic Route and so glad I did. From what I read here at Finding Heaven I think we are kindred spirits brought together by our Heavenly Father.
    Many blessings!

  10. So glad you stopped over from FMF today because now I've found your blog and your community. I have found a similar comfort in blogging as I continue to deal with grief from a mother with Alzheimer's and the ministry my husband and I are part of in the recovery community. I hope to be around here more as I continue to learn God's desire for community in our lives.
